NHL Bad Beats: Thoughts And Prayers To Bettors Who Had Kings, Under

Minnesota tied it with less than a second left, and won it with 10 seconds left in OT


January 17, 2021

If you had tickets for either the Los Angeles Kings or the under, we’re sorry for your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Marcus Johannson’s one-timer with 10 seconds remaining in overtime lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 4-3 victory over the Kings on Saturday.

And if you think that’s bad, well, we’re just getting started.

The only reason the game even went to overtime was because Minnesota teammate Ryan Suter tied the game with 0.3 left in regulation. The game-tying goal forced overtime at 3-all, losing it for all those who bet the under on the 5.5 total.

The Kings went into the game +110, as well.

Suter’s tally came after Minnesota carried the puck the length of the ice in the final 15 seconds. The Kings had just missed a long-range, empty-net chance off the post in the final minute. Had Los Angeles scored there, a two-goal lead would’ve sealed it for Kings bettors, but wouldn’t have helped those who took the under, either.

That can’t ever happen again, right?
